"The act of homosexuality is contradictory with Christian instructing. Consequently recognized toward oneself drilling gay people are not to be confirmed as applicants, appointed as pastors or named to serve in the United Methodist Church."
Rev. Irene Elizabeth "Beth" Stroud was defrocked by the United Methodist Church in December in light of the fact that she uncovered to her assemblage, in the wake of living in mystery for two years, that she is in a life-time conferred "marriage" with somebody of the same sex.
Recently Rev. Stroud's case was assessed amid a congregation request that was held in a Linthicum, MA inn room, as indicated by Baltimoresun.com's article by Stephanie Desmon.
Rev. Tom Hall, who spoke to the congregation, said: 'This trial was not, nor is about how great and grand we are as pastors. It is not about the limits, about the lines. It is around a decent individual who has ventures over the line.'
What's more as indicated by the pioneers of the United Methodist Church and customary Christianity, Rev. Stroud unmistakably ventures over the line into living in sin when she decided to have a gay person relationship.
Yet as indicated by Authentic Biblical Christianity, Rev. Stroud is carrying on with an ethical life of "ABC" confidence as she lives in a monogamous conferred matrimonial marriage with Christ as the head and her mate by her side.
Rev. Stroud ought to be recognized for remaining up for the Truth. She is an illustration of what it intends to be a Christian strange who grabs their cross and takes after Christ Jesus. The servant is not more noteworthy than the expert. In the event that they scorned me, they will scorn you additionally.
